Europe wants to Save Women... from Porn

An upcoming vote on a non-binding but potentially influential EU resolution "on eliminating gender stereotypes in the EU" contains some rather problematic language.

Apparently it deems any and all porn to be demeaning to women, and considers banning porn to be the solution.  Because nothing empowers women like a ban on expressing sexuality.

Either the extremists of the feminist left and conservative right have annexed the center, or a hell of a lot of people didn't read this resolution very carefully until now (score one for the bloggers).

Full text here of the resolution here.
